What Constitutes Sexual Assault in Illinois?

In Illinois State law, someone who has submitted another to a sexual act of any kind without legal consent has committed sexual assault. These acts can include rape, molestation, fondling groping, any other kind of touching, or any other form of sexual act. Even if there is no force involved with the behavior, it could be considered sexual assault if the alleged victim had no means of giving proper consent, such as in cases involving minors or mentally disabled persons.

Consequences of Sexual Assault Accusations

In many cases, sexual assault charges are considered class 1 felonies. Penalties surrounding this serious sex crime can be absolutely devastating to the accused, taking away their freedom and livelihood for stretches at a time, if not the rest of their life. If violence was used against the alleged victim, the consequences could be even worse.

Punishments involving sexual assault convictions in Illinois include:

  • Up to 15 years in prison
  • Thousands of dollars in fines
  • Possible nominals fees paid to accuser
  • Mandatory sex offender list registration
